The wait is over! Fifth Harmony’s highly anticipated first single as a quartet is here and we think you’ll be so down for it. The group announced the release date of ‘Down’ featuring Gucci Mane, earlier this week and fans have been eagerly waiting to give it a listen. You can now stream it on Spotify or purchase it on iTunes.
Looks like the girls are aiming to win ‘Song of The Summer’ because we can already tell this is going to be blasting through our radios all summer long. It might be short and sweet and may not be a meaningful ballad, but it’s a fun and easy listen that’s pure radio candy. It’s actually a smart move as a first single for this new era because radio spins means promo.
Meet ‘Down’: The mature and older sister of ‘Work From Home’. The track has that same idea of a repetitive and catchy chorus with a fun and urban beat. The song also has a rap break thrown in BUT the difference between the songs is that ‘Down’ is a lot more crisp and GROWN.
There’s also the obvious difference of one less voice on the track. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard just Normani, Dinah Jane, Ally, and Lauren’s voice singing a Fifth Harmony track but we are pleased to say that their voices work really well together.
Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on Fifth Harmony’s ‘Down’. :

I like that's it's catchy like WFH on the chorus but the girls sound crisper & I like the adlibs more. An EASY listen and a bop #5HDown
